Eye Glasses Case

I love English Paper Piecing! That’s something I never thought I would say, but I recently discovered how much enjoy this technique. Hand-sewing something has proven to be quite relaxing and piecing together lots of cute fabrics is always a lot of fun.

I came across this technique when making another Christmas present – an eye class case (following this great and very easy to follow tutorial over at Liesl Made). As I really enjoyed theĀ process as well as the final product, I am already forward to paper piecing a few more things… Another case is already in the works! And this time I’ll try to integrate a flex frame to keep the glasses from sliding out of their case.

Additionally to the tutorial mentioned beforehand, I used these instructions for the paper piecing as I didn’t have any freezer paper to work with and used just normal paper onto which I printed the hexagon shapes from the same site. (other shapes / patterns are available too)

Oh, and I used Amy Butler fabric for this project – more specifically from her Lotus and Belle range.

iPod Case

Wow, it’s been such a long time since I posted something on here. Life’s been quite a whirlwind in the last few months. End of semester exams are now all over and done with, luckily. And, I started my master thesis! I guess my summer will be spent mostly on getting done as much as possible regarding that. But hopefully there will also be time for the odd crafting. =)

Although it’s been quiet here, I nevertheless got a few things done/sewn. So there’ll be a massive update over the next few days…

First of all, one of my favourites that’s been in heavy use ever since I finished it: my new iPod case!

I got the idea during one of my visits to the gym. Where to put the iPod while doing the weights? I need my constant entertainment! šŸ˜‰

Well, I made an iPod case for my upper arm. I kind of based it on Pink Penguin’s tutorial for a Simple Camera Case.
Of course I adjusted the shape to fit my iPod touch. I also added a Velcro closure and a casing at the back for my adjustable strap, which itself uses lots of Velcro. I am really pleased with the result, I have to say =)
